Do you ever feel like your day-to-day life is cluttered? Oftentimes there are too many things to do, and it is easy to become overwhelmed. When we are disorganized, priorities can lead to other daily tasks being forgotten. A simple solution to this common occurrence in our lives is list making. It takes only a couple of minutes and can restore order over your life.
THE POWER OF A TO-DO LIST
Making lists allows you to lay out your schedule in an organized manner. In fact, neuroscience research suggests that you are 42% more likely to accomplish your goals if you write them down daily. When we organize our minds onto paper, we can visually mark things off as they get completed. When we check off our to-do list, we experience instant gratification. The psychological impact of instant gratification releases dopamine in the brain, making us feel accomplished. Organization is a key tool to happiness. If you find yourself getting overwhelmed with the length of your to-do list, try breaking it up into different categories to make the process of completing tasks easier.
PLAN OF ACTION
By making lists we can set goals and targets more easily for ourselves, giving us more time to excel. Getting into a routine of making lists will inevitably make you more driven and motivated to get things done. When you have a clear call to action, it is easy to execute your tasks with confidence.
SIMPLICITY = SANITY
Our brains love lists because of their simplicity. The human brain can process information more quickly and clearly when it is presented to us in the format of a list or column. Leonardo Da Vinci once said that “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. Pursuing simplicity can lead to a sense of satisfaction and peace of mind. At Snapfix, we are obsessed with simplicity and take pride in getting things done efficiently. Our platform is designed for infinite flexibility as we understand how valuable time is.
MAKING LISTS USING SNAPFIX
Here at Snapfix, we have organisation figured out. Our platform makes task organisation readily accessible to anyone. It’s as easy as taking a photo! Tasks are created by taking a photo or video and can be organised by level of priority. Tasks are then organised into customisable groups. Our ‘traffic lights’ system then sorts the tasks from red to yellow and finally to green when completed.
Checklists can also be added to tasks to make sure the work is fully carried out and a checklist sign off is present to increase accountability.
Team collaboration is made easy with our instant messaging feature which allows you to easily assign or share tasks with your colleagues. It’s as simple as that!
